Great the leftovers here are available. That pocket-rocket Playin', the slow-mo Jack Straw, that tight-as-a-drum Cumberland are ALL great.
DP2 is, yes, a great investment. The Dark Star > Groovy > etc. is an old fave, and DIG Jer's playing on that first NFA.
Subject: i love this band but...
give me a break. this could be the in my mind greatest tripped out dark star ever played and it has been capsuled in to what i bought and considered the most entrenched and crazy show bobby ever played. listen to the end of sugar mag and tell me that this show is not worthy of a full release. ridiculous.
get off your horse.
Subject: Must-have companion to DP 2
Here we have the boys exactly a week after the release of Skull & Roses, not really promoting same in the traditional sense in that only 4 of the 15 songs in set 1 come from S&R.
Set 2 on DP2 is course to die for, and set 1 here makes a great companion to get the complete show. Nothing remarkable other than a great late '71 setlist, albeit one without the ailing Pig.
On the mix side, there are a couple of anomalies. Keith is way too fucking high in the mix in Bertha -- almost as high as he is in the 12-15-71 Hillman Auditorium show, at which the audience pleaded with the band to turn Keith OFF. Happily, this was apparently caught and he's brought back down into the mix by Me & My Uncle.
Also, and I'm at a loss to explain this without donning a tinfoil hat, Bobby's on the left and Jerry's on the right for the first three songs, then they abruptly switch channels for PITB and the rest of the set. Huh?
Unlike others, I don't see any difference between the stereo/instrument separations here and on DP2. The only difference mix-wise that I do notice on DP2 is that Keith either didn't even play or they actually muted him in the mix during that set.
show for me, cause it sounds like they're slowing everything down and making it real deliberate. Jack Straw sounds awesome, and there's a moment in there where Garcia forces the speed a full step down, really noticeably. The Casey Jones is one of the slowest, most staccato renditions I've heard from this era. Sounds like they really wanted to get it right and take their time doing it, and this makes a change from the usual '71 show. I haven't heard DP2, but what we have hear is very good.

when the Dead played this night. A standard setlist for Fall'71. However the songs are well played. I agree that the instrument separation is better here than on DP2,(a minor complaint). I will give it 5 stars. If you don't own DP2 yet...what are you waiting for???
Subject: Thank you, CM!
Dylan M was on-point. CM's edit of Set 1 has better instrument separation than the DP edit of Set 2! Regardless, "lay your money down" for DP Vol 2 if you don't have it already. The set list looks great on paper and the playing exceeds the highest expectations.
Subject: I Was At This Show 3rd Row!
A terrific show, with an audience that didn't get to see the Dead all that often in this party of the country. "An Evening with the Grateful Dead" opening act Jerry Garcia playing steel with the New Riders of the Purple Sage. A sold out show at the newly renovated Ohio Theatre (hence the comments between "Me & My Uncle" and "Deal" to "...please don't jump and down on the seats...jump on the floor instead" LOL). Pigpen absent from this show due to illness, Keith Godchaux sitting in on piano. At some point, the audience just had a party by themselves, and the band just sort of played along...

Charlie's right, get DPV2 (Dick's Picks Volume 2) it's well worth the download at www.deadnetstore.com.
Charlie said buy it, so I did. Thanks Charlie. You're right again...
I highly recommend adding this show to your DPV2. That way you'll have both sets.
The audio quality of this show is "Charlie Miller"...and that is good enough for me...
I recommend using your EQ/SRS WOW Effects during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.
Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
Here's one way to stream/dowload this show:
The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.
RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at www.realplayer.com.
Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.
If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.
Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.
When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.
Repeat these steps for each song.
You could just hook up your audio cables from your computer to your Cassette, CD, VHS, DVD, MP3, recorder and record the show in real time.
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD, for tomorrow we may die...
Thanks for the LOVE from 1971.

Dylan M -
Great to have the first set to one of my all time favorite dicks picks. An unlike the release, Keith's piano is crisp and present. in DPV2, i just can't hear any Keith, weird. But Charlie's transfer (as always) does this recording and concert justice. Thanks man!
